Metal de Facto popped up on our radar last year as a collaborative side project of a few of our favorite local metalheads, such as Ensiferum’s Sami Hinkka, ex-Kiuas/Leverage guitarist Mikko Salovaara, and Everfrost’s Benji Connelly and Mikael Salo. Their debut, Imperium Romanum, proved that they were ready to make power metal great again and their debut show was a joyous party. Now you can hear arguably the best song on the album (in my humble opinion) and see the footage from the live show as an official single!
Word on the street is that the original plan for this music video involved a great and glorious toga party. As this idea tragically never reached fruition, the next best thing really is the use of live material from a fantastic show. We already know that this song is a bombastic piece of ferocious fun, as we’ve been listening to it since 2019, so getting the opportunity to see the crowd coming alive to the music is a nice way to push the song to the limit. If the band was planning to release another single from their debut, this was surely the way to go!
